Joseph Kimball Crapo
Birth: Dec. 12, 1872
Salt Lake County
Utah, USA
Death: Dec. 2, 1955
Bannock County
Idaho, USA

My great-great-uncle. Married Orba "Orby" Harmon on Oct 10, 1895. Joseph's brother John married Orby's sister Hattie. Thus the 2 couples' children were double cousins.

The photo I submitted of him is his portion of a family portrait taken circa 1884. The following obit from the Star Valley Independent is courtesy of Carol Stevens.

Funeral services were held Monday, Dec 5 [1955] in the Fairview Ward Chapel for Joseph Kimball Crapo, 82 a resident of Fairview until recently who died Friday, Dec 2, in Pocatello, ID. He was at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Thelma Millward, 157 Jones Drive.

He was born Dec 12, 1872, at Draper, UT, the son of Jonathan Collins Crapo and Emily Frances Burnham. He was a rancher at Parker, ID, in Alberta, Canada and in Fairview until he recently retired and moved from Fairview to Pocatello to live.

The father to 12 children, he is survived by 8 members of his family: Asa Crapo, Fairview; Ralph and Wilis Crapo, Pocatello; Linford Crapo, Shelley, ID; Mrs. Grace Barney, Annabella, UT; Mrs. Thelma Millward, Pocatello; Mrs. Vivian Larsen, Thayne, WY; and Mrs. Joyce Draney, Auburn, WY. One sister and one brother also survive.

When those we love have left this earth, we still can feel them near. We'll see a picture, hear a song, and it's just like they are here. And when we call upon our faith, when we believe and trust, we know the ones we care about are always close to us.
